That G3 suji almost looks like a gyuto. I'll take a few pics of my work knives tomorrow
Yeah, I wished it was a little thinner, maybe with some more work on the shoulders, it will be good. I wished the steel was the Tokko steel like the TKC/Carbonext. The G3 steel is a pain to deburr, and It chipped a lot initially. I had to put a less aggressive bevel on it than my initial sharpening bevel, because it started to have some bad microchipping. I was probably on a wire edge, but I thought I had deburred and everything. The TKC steel is great, not burring problems on very acute angles.
As you can see, I have thrown everything on this knife and yet no rust, just some discoloration. 1.5% chromium in 52100 goes a long way.
Hmm... I can't add pictures here.
OK I said I'd post a few pics so here they are. I rarely cook at home so my work knives are basically all my knives, I just don't get super fancy ones I guess. I have a lot more but this is my rotation at present
240 Masamoto KS
Sakai Yusuke White#2 210 petty
240 Watanabe kurouchi gyuto
Mac Hone, and my very nice strop
Well, I guess I should say, no pitting yet, but this was part of a test how much care 52100 requires. My conclusion - very little.
